James Thodie was tried at Old Bailey, London on 23 July 1782 for stealing clothing with a value of 130 shillings.
He was sentenced to transportation for 7 years having been originally sentenced to death, and left England on the Friendship aged about 28 at that time (May 1787). His occupation was listed as plasterer. He died in 1795.
Guilty of return from transport following the Mercury mutiny.Report from Dunkirk hulk was “troublesome at times”.
